Teaching with Collections

Teaching with Collections_COBRAL

As a teaching museum, the Art, Design & Architecture Museum at the University of California, Santa Barbara welcomes classes from all departments of the University to visit the Museum, Print Room, and Architecture and Design Collection. We will gladly assemble a collection of works of art, visual culture, or archival material appropriate for your curricular needs.

We also extend a warm welcome to school groups from the Santa Barbara community. 

The AD&A Museum also offers its collections to classes and researchers for study at the Center for Object-Based Research and Learning (COBRAL) located at UCSB's Image Resource Center. COBRAL has been designed to support museum studies, architectural history, and other courses focused on learning through the study of materials. 
Please contact Collections Manager and Registrar Susan Lucke for more information on the Art Collections, and to schedule an appointment for your class in the AD&A Museum Print Room.
Please contact Curator of Architecture and Design Silvia Perea for more information on the Architecture and Design Collection.
Please contact cbattle@ucsb.edu for more information about visiting current or future AD&A Museum exhibitions with your class.
